Cells solitary, spherical. Papillae usually present, ca.6-12 papillae/μm. Plates usually with radially arranged papillae between the slit-like areolae, and one or more concentric rows of papillae along the top of a raised marginal rim. Plates with small central papilla, but no central mound. [Konno et al. 2007]

Cells 2.7-3.3μm in diameter. Shield plates ca.1.7-2.4μm in diameter, with a wall-like plate margin. Triradiate girdle plates, arms ca.1.3-1.5μm long (measured along the dorso-ventral plane, from end to central papilla). Arms of dorsal plate, ca.1.0-1.4μm long. Ventral plate ca.1.6μm in diameter.[Konno et al. 2007]

Ecology & Biogeography

This species has mostly been recorded in the subarctic Pacific, but also occurs in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, Canada (Bérard-Therriault et al., 1999, p.246, pl.113, figs a, e) and in the Chukchi Sea (this study). [Konno et al. 2007]
